The Week of Becoming 26...

With as much as I don't really enjoy being the center of attention, my birthday somehow spread itself out over a week!

I rang in my birthday while hanging out at Kristen, Miriam and Kjerstin's place. I didn't get a picture of that, but I did take a picture of the AMAZING brownie pan that Kristen got me...believe me, it works GREAT! I got home late that night to find that Tiff had dropped off a birthday breakfast for me as well!

On Monday, my actual birthday, Melanie took me out to dinner to my favorite, Chilis! Oh how glorious! She was even with me the SECOND I actually did turn 26! (at 10:23pm PST)

On Tuesday, since my boss let me work from home for my birthday, I got to work and enjoyed lots of birthday wishes, cards and banners! It was also St. Patricks day, and I had forgotten to wear co worker was nice enough to let me borrow his green highlighter!

Later that night, I went over to Abby and Cindy's place. Abby made me the MOST AMAZING 11 layer cake! I keep on wanting to go over and have more, but I'm trying to hold myself back... They also got me the most hilarious card. I have it in my purse if anyone ever wants to listen to it!

I also got surprised with these beautiful flowers on Tuesday from my sister Susannah and her husband, Kevin!

On Thursday, despite how uncreative I am, Jess and I had a BLAST at Color Me Mine...we each made soap dispensers! Afterwards we went out to ice cream. We get to pick up out finished product on Monday...I can't wait to see them!

Friday night, Sarah and Ryan took me to Divine Comedy...Sarah and Ryan were even in one of the videos! It was fun to get to hang out with them again!

Johnny came also...and enjoyed his first Divine Comedy experience. Clearly he enjoyed the glow sticks that they throw into the crowd!

Saturday, the girls all got together to have brunch at Mimi's Cafe. It was really good to see everyone and get caught up on life! The french toast was fantastic as well!

I got lots of great phone calls, texts and emails. It is always nice to know that you are loved!

I'm pretty sure that I'm done celebrating my here's to another year!

26 is going to be great!

Oh, sorry I missed your birthday! Sounds like you had a great week. Your birthday is on the same day as my sister's, so hopefully I'll be able to remember it in the future. Or, if I forget it, at least I'll have forgotten my own sister's as well, and you will know I'm beyond hope.

And that chocolate cake was the biggest I've ever seen in my life.
